Mensagem:  Hi, folks! It´s me again.
While watching one of my favorite tv series, I heard the expression, I guess, this is what I heard - "Not on the cards" or maybe in the cards. I was wondering what does it mean? 
I know, I know that you, Dale, and my other friends are fixin´ to ask the context, right? kkkk. But I really don´t remember. I already looked it up to no avail.
Another episode, I heard a variation of the expression - " to bark up the wrong tree" like this - "you´re barking up the wrong coconut tree". I found it interesting. Is it that used? Or it was just used during the tv series? Are there other variations of it?
